Spaciousness comes in this classic and comfortable two-story brick home tucked in Glennwood Estates, just a quick walk from the vibrant activity in Decatur Square. It’s a space that will warm you from the moment you step through colonial columns and into a foyer that’s positively aglow with natural light from glass doors and windows on four sides. A single door leads straight to the back deck – perfect when you’re entertaining guests in the picture-book back yard – and French doors lead into the yawning living room, with luxurious hardwood floors and a showpiece gas-log fireplace set between windows.
Throughout you’ll find a total of five bedrooms, including a sumptuously owner’s suite on the main floor, offering a walk-in closet, a door to the deck, a triptych of windows overlooking the woods in back, and en-suite bathroom, loaded with a whirlpool soaking tub (beneath an art deco window), double vanity, and a roomy tile and glass shower. Also on the main level: a dedicated dining room, a convenient half-bath, easy access to the stairs leading to the upstairs bedrooms or the huge basement downstairs, and a marvelous updated kitchen. That kitchen area boasts an eat-in space for quick, casual meals and a working space surrounded by white cabinets and counters topped with lovely and durable stone surfaces. It’s finished with stainless appliances – an electric self-cleaning range, gas cooktop, refrigerator, built-in microwave, and garbage disposal. A nearby alcove offers a home for the washer and dryer plus bonus storage for a pantry, linens, or both! Head upstairs and find an astounding four more bedrooms with hardwood floors, each with a generous closet. There’s another full bath here as well.
The private back yard is a treasure, with a garden area and a manicured lawn that’s thoughtfully landscaped with shrubs and trees on the verge. That beauty is showcased from the wraparound deck (with a built-in gas grill). There’s a two-car garage in addition to the home’s original 1930s garage space. The downstairs basement, with its high ceilings and rock walls, offers loads of storage and limitless potential for future finishing. And neighborhood amenities abound that far exceed just your one-mile proximity to the Square, including easy strolls to Glenlake Park for a game or tennis or the natural solitude of Glenn Creek Nature Preserve’s forested paths.
